  • Won $50,000 in Online Sweepstakes Will I lose SSDi?

    H.’s Answer

    The short answer to your question is no if you are receiving only Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI) and not Supplemental Security Income disability (SSI). Only "earned income" from working applies to SSDI income limits, and there are no limits on income from lottery winnings, investment income, or spouse's income. On the other hand, SSI has strict income limits for individuals and married couples living together. As always, be very careful that the sweepstake company is legitimate and that it is not a scam.

  • Do i qualify for social security disability for having severe anxiety and aspergers?

    H.’s Answer

    You should use the find a lawyer feature of this website to find an experienced disability attorney near you that offers free consultations. Your situation requires an in-depth consultation concerning your work activities and mental health treatment. It is difficult, but not impossible, for someone of your age to establish disability based on your impairments. This is not something you should do on your own. Disability attorneys work on a contingency fee basis so you do not pay legal fees unless you win.

  • How long before I receive an answer from SSD after a CE consulation and what are my chances of approval?

    H.’s Answer

    The processing time varies from state to state. If the disability examiner believes that the medical evidence is fully developed after the consultative evaluation, it generally takes 30 to 60 days for the medical review to be completed in North Carolina. Your impairments can lead to a favorable decision but it is impossible to gauge your chances for success based on this limited information.

  • Is someone able to work though they are applying for SSDI?

    H.’s Answer

    I agree with my colleague but would add that the $1,220 per month figure is gross pay before any withholding and not take-home pay. Social Security considers a person's activity of daily living, including part-time work in determining whether someone is disabled.
